    by the time PS3 is out though - there should be huge strides in PC hardware. that - and i feel xbox 2 is probably going to trump PS3 because of its earlier release. not that i want that to happen. i'm hoping PS3 will be backwards compatible and really smoke with online play. guess we'll have to wait till 2006... and after that i guess we can wait for longhorn :confused:

    In other news, the PS3 shipping has been delayed X months thanks to short supplys of IBM's Cell chip.

    Cool.

    Seem's like dual/multi core is the way to go nowadays. I wonder how much tech the new chip will share with IBM's other processors (i.e. POWER series).

    I'm glad anytime someone is pushing IBM forward in chip development.

    MacRumors hang in there....IBM wants to jump in serious bed with our little Apple Grrl...

    Arn you wanna jump back in with some news on this stuff?

    Motorola people in my area...are feeling abandoned.
